Unfortunately... it still doesn't work, although at least it doesn't
hang eating cpu, or detach itself into the background and then hang
eating cpu, like it does without the patch. After recompiling:

   tanaqui% wineprefixcreate 
   [1]   Segmentation fault      "${WINELOADER:-$...
   Exit 139

(the machine is a -current from mid-August)

While I'm here, I should note that copying ~/.wine from a Linux (or,
presumably, FreeBSD) machine seems to work fine as a workaround, and a
lot of apps seem to be able to run in spite of whatever the remaining
problem(s) is/are. Including, FWIW, the legacy compiler I mentioned in
the original report.
